Spent some time making some quick to make bracelets, hoping to come up with things that can be sold cheaply through the one outlet I've found in town. Apparently a LOT of her jewelry sales (as opposed to her expensive art glass) in tourist season is to kids and teens who aren't spending $45 on a bracelet. So far I've come up with these:

The two on the right are just strung seed beads & rice 'pearls', three strands that are then braided. The downside of these is that the 'pearls' are plastic so they would probably *only* sell to kids, and I'm not sure I want plastic shown on the same display as my more expensive stuff (and I can only have one display board)- and I can't find any inexpensive glass pearls in this shape.

The left two are glass pearls and seed beads in simple RAW. They make a nicely heavy bracelet that is quick to work up.
